Description: The aim of the NOMS ICT Services (NIS) Programme (formally part of Quantum Re-compete Project) is to address the provision of ICT Services under the Quantum contract which expired at the end of 2012. The new ICT Services contract will sustain the NOMS service until the forthcoming Future IT Sourcing (FITS) contracts are in place and are ready for applicable services to be transitioned. The new NIS contract can be terminated by service ‘tower’ and by month, to be replaced by FITS contracts for service towers, unless the contractor can demonstrate superior value for money during the remaining contract term. The delivery part of the new contract is now referred to as the NOMS ICT Services (NIS) Programme and covers the transformation of the current technology to the new infrastructure services.
DCA (RAG): Amber
DCA text: The Programme has an Amber rating. This reflects delays in the delivery of proof of concept. The Supplier is developing a solution to address the technical issues encountered during proof of concept phase. Once this has been proven to our satisfaction, we shall be in a position to agree an implementation plan for roll out. Prisons and NOMS HQ are still able to use the existing equipment
Start date: 2011-07-18
End date: 2014-11-30
Schedule text: Deployment is running approximately 6 weeks behind schedule and there are a number of technical issues affecting the stability of the new system at the Proof of Concept (POC) sites. Currently the delivery completion date can be held by commencing activities, such as printer deployment, early and a more aggressive schedule in the later deployment waves.
